McConaughey replaces Wilson in small role

September 20, 2007|Associated Press

Matthew McConaughey is taking Owen Wilson's role in the comedy movie "Tropic Thunder." Wilson, 38, dropped out of the DreamWorks movie after an apparent suicide attempt in August. The Ben Stiller-directed "Tropic Thunder" is filming in Hawaii with Stiller, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., Nick Nolte, Bill Hader and Steve Coogan. McConaughey has an uncredited cameo in the movie, his publicist, Nicole Perez, said Wednesday.

Wilson was taken by ambulance to a hospital after police responded to a call about a suicide attempt at his Santa Monica home.
